According to Kirk Luedeke, the Bruins have agreed to ELCs with both Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight.
After successive strong training and development camps by each, this is quite a bit of good news for the B's.
Just one day before the National Hockey League's Entry Draft, the Philadelphia Flyers have made drastic changes to the face of their franchise.
In two separate deals made within a half hour of each other on Thursday, the club traded away captain Mike Richards and former 40-plus goal scorer Jeff Carter.
Richards was shipped to the Los Angeles Kings for forwards Brayden Schenn, Wayne Simmonds and a second-round draft pick, while Carter was dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Jakub Voracek and a first (8th overall) and third round draft pick.
By dealing Carter and Richards, the Flyers opened up enough cap space to then sign recently-acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine-year, $51 million contract.
"I’m not too pleased about that, but we’re going to make the most of it," he quipped of the early start time. "I think they thought the world was going to end at night, so they wanted to play the game in the day."

It is very sad to see Marc Savard struggling with concussions. But don't forget that, in a sense, Matt Cooke has been victimized, too.
(really Hockey News? Really?)
In my mind, I kind of lost the love for what I enjoyed. I was asking myself, 'Do I want to put myself through this again?'
"I am aware of the various media reports today regarding Marco Sturm. I can confirm that I spoke to Marco about waiving his no trade clause and have had discussions regarding Marco with other teams. I can also confirm that there is no trade in place with Marco. At this time, Marco is a member of the Boston Bruins and will continue to train with our team."
"When the Colorado GM called me and he's like 'We just traded you', I was praying. I had a few cities in mind, but I was praying it wasn't Edmonton and when he said Boston, I was like, 'Wow, this couldn't be any better!' "
The Boston Garden was famous for its smaller playing surface. This lead to a more physical game, something the Bruins used to their advantage on home ice. Playing in the Boston Garden was hell for a visiting team, and the Bruins designed their teams to make that a reality.
2. Bruins fans start chanting, "Thank you, Kessel" after Tyler Seguin scores against the Maple Leafs. Kessel's reply: "I could care less, to tell you the truth ... It doesn't matter to me one bit." My experience: when someone says that, it bothers them. A lot.
